About: Royal Gwent Hospital / General Surgery University Hospital Of Wales / General Surgery Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr / General surgery

(as the patient),

They are responsible for the chaos that exists in the Hospitals. They close A&E departments and decide to move them to the 2 largest in the area increasing waiting times. It takes longer to find a parking space in the Royal Gwent than it takes to travel 12 miles from my home. They closed the dept in the Caerphilly Miners, opened a new hospital in the area, without a dept. Inquired where the doctors went, informed they were dispersed between other hospitals.

Looking at other closures to transfer to same large hospitals, contributing to probable further admission delays, ambulance delays and waiting times. Do they not have the sense you can't get a quart into a pint pot
